    It's a statement not a question.
    So it's either telling or explaining

    I have used snow foam for a few yrs but not on mh, never noticed it leaving any kind of wax residue, to be honest i never found it as good as the stuff i use now, found it to be overated if anything

    I use it when travelling
    Neat in a hand held sprayer, with tumble dryer sheets.
    Best thing I've found for removing bugs from the front of the van

    Your original post is ambiguous. Nobody was being rude.

    Snow foam categorically will not leave wax. It certainly will remove wax if used mixed to strongly with water. It really should be mixed weakly or all you will do is waste product and strip any previously applied wax or sealant .

    Some shampoos and detailing sprays leave wax but not pre wash snow foams.

    I really don't understand that at all. The original post was not at all clear but people interpreted as best they could and @Charlie the detailing expert gave a categorical answer, albeit after your quote above. Didn't see anyone do anything but try and understand/help.

    That seems unfair. Nobody was "taking the piss" as far as I can see. If you think so then you may be a little too sensitive for the internet.

    I, like others, did not fully understand your original post. Were you asking for advice or expressing your opinion? If the former you got it, if the latter then you must understand that people may have a different opinion, including people on here who make a living out of cleaning and detailing motorhomes.

    As for "low numbers" on this forum I am not sure what you are comparing it with. It has by far the most number of daily posts of any UK motorhome related forum I have ever found - unless you can show me one that has more.

    Yes you can buy it with extra wax and does appear to bead when washing

    I've used it a few times on my van and it peeled the plastic film off the "rating" sticker (with all the serial numbers, axle weight details etc) other than that, I've found it no better than normal car shampoo.

    Snow foam gets our van very clean - and it's really fun to apply!
